Prepare for your Drive Test

Hazard Perception

You must pass the VicRoads Hazard Perception Test before attempting your driving test. The process of obtaining your Probationary licence is divided into two parts, the Hazard Perception Test and the Drive Test

VicRoads recommends you take these on two different days, just in case you fail the hazard test then have to abort the driving test. Passing these two tests is a considerable challenge - many learner drivers fail their drive test on the first attempt.

The most effective way of preparing for your drive test is by taking regular driving lessons with a qualified trainer so that you prepare properly. Don't leave it to the last minute, especially if you've had few or no lessons prior to your test. Take a driving lesson at least once a fortnight before your appointment is highly recommended.

Drive Test Assessment Criteria

The Driving Test is an on-road test that assesses your driving skills, decision-making, awareness of other road users, and how you share the road with other traffic. You will drive along a set course whilst a testing officer scores your driving ability. You will pass if you get 90% or more and have no fail items. Before you take the driving test, obtain a copy of the driving handbook 'Road to Driving Solo' available from Vic Roads or view it on the Vic Roads website. Your best source of information is your Safe2Drive Driving Trainer.

The driving test will not be conducted unless you produce your log book showing that you have completed and achieved all of the learning goals. This includes a minimum of 120 hours driving practice, 20 hours of which must be night driving. Both you and your supervising driver must sign the declaration of completion at the end of the book. Your P1 licence is valid for 12 months. You must have held your P1 licence for a minimum of 12 months before you can progress to the next licence stage.

Practice Driving Tests

A practice driving test reviews your driving and evaluates your specific trouble areas. We'll show you exactly what to practice at home so that you achieve your goal faster. All Safe2Drive students receive a report that will show you how far you are from the test standard and the specific topics that still need to be practised.
Before you go for the test, you can pick up a copy of 'Driving Solo' from Vic Roads office. Your driver trainer will also be able to give you the information you need. Safe2Drive students will go through a practice driving test before they attempt a test. This ensures they have the necessary confidence and knowledge to be able to pass the driving test on the first attempt.
